Rainy Evening

We never measure

the worth of just one rain-drop…

just the water gauge.

Her poems ‘Sunsets’ and ‘Clear Out‘ were featured on Eyes Plus Words, and two of her poems were included in the DVerse Poets Pub Publication ‘Chiaroscuro’ which is available for purchase on amazon. More recently her poem ‘Until The Light Gets In‘ was accepted and published at The Drabble and her poem ‘Newborn’ was published by Ink Sweat & Tears.

    Carol, I’ve just followed your blog as of today, as I have been wanting to learn to write poetry and another blog friend gave me the link to your guest post today about learning to write poetry. I do love your writing. I’ve been reading some of your Haiku poetry and have a question. Is there a rule as to the number of words per line? Many of yours differ. I’ve seen 3-5-4 etc., but hey seem to differ. I will do as your recommend in your Guest Post and read more poetry as well as get away from the computer more and experience life a little more.thanks!

    • I use the 5-7-5 syllable rule for haiku poetry. It’s a more traditional form.
      I’m glad you liked the post and it’s lovely to hear someone recommended my blog. May I ask who it was?

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
